This book is a true Louis L’Amour classic! Hondo is a superior work of western fiction. The author is a master of description in his often poetic words which display his remarkable understanding of the old west and the characters that make his stories live for the reader. If the reader appreciates people studies set in authentic rustic scenes of the old west, this book is for you.

Macon Fallon had never needed more than a deck of cards, a fast horse, and a ready gun; he was counting on those things now as he led an unsuspecting group of settlers to an abandoned mining town. But while Fallon prepared to pass the ghost town off as a gold mine in the making, a funny thing happened: a real-life community started to take shape in the town he’d christened Red Horse. So when a band of vicious outlaws and a kid who fancied himself a gunslinger threatened to rip Red Horse apart, Fallon found himself caught in one predicament he’d never gambled on.

What a clever story line on this enjoyable novel by Louis L’Amour!
This book has a different twist to it, so the reader will be surprised if the expectation is the lawman vs. bad guys narrative. A real treat!

Chick Bowdrie could have been an outlaw, but he rode a different trail. The Texas Rangers recruited Bowdrie to help pursue the most wanted men in the Southwest. And Bowdrie knew the terrain all too well: the dusty trails, bitter cattle feuds, the desperate killers, and the weather-beaten towns that could explode into chaos at the wrong word. The Rangers were called in to handle the tough cases, and Bowdrie was the toughest and smartest.

As with Volume 1 in this series, I very much enjoyed the imaginative and authentic work of Louis L’Amour as an expert writer of western thrillers. Excellent dramatizations of the written story with superior sound effects and character voices.

It was a name that caused the most hardened gunmen to break out in a cold sweat: Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie. Pursuing the most wanted men in the Southwest, he knew all too well the dusty trails, the bitter cattle feuds, the desperate killers, and the quiet, weather-beaten towns that could explode into mayhem with the wrong word. He had sworn to carry out the law, but there were times when he had to apply justice with his fists and his guns.

Louis L’Amour is simply the best western fiction writer ever! This series of short stories took me back to the days of the old radio dramas my family used to gather around the old console radio in the living room to listen to together. Good wholesome entertainment!
